“Eron” is a Greek word that means “lover” — and yes, you'll fall in love with this lover. A juicy palate of plum and blackberry flavor finishes strong with peppery notes and soft tannins. Goes well with tomato-based pasta dishes or barbecued meats.

Cantine Pepi is led by Rosa Pepi and her daughter Erika in Mazzarone (an area in the hills alongside Sicily’s Dirillo River). They like to say of themselves that they are “run by women tha boldly undertake the profession of the winemaker in Sicily.” Their family has had a connection to wine for four generations and since 2000, the mother-daughter duo have created wines which express the unique terroir of Sicilian land.
